Harrods remains one of London’s greatest shopping destinations. My wife and I visited during the post-Christmas sales, and, well – it really is a retail experience like no other. The menswear department on the lower ground floor is like visiting Mr. Porter if it had a physical space. I like browsing online to a degree – but I will always favour visiting, browsing, taking in. Being delighted by a surprise find or sale item hidden away amongst a rail or a shelf. I really wanted to find the Brunello Cucinelli concession, but to no avail. One downside of a place the size of Harrods is that the layout is a tad confusing. No matter. The wife and I have decided to make the visit to Harrods post-Christmas an annual one. And I hope to make a pilgrimage of sorts to Brunello Cucinelli this summer as we will be in the Umbria region of Italy. I keep reading about the castle, the village of Solomeo, and it conjures up images of real craftsmanship and dedication to fine men’s clothing. Wait for that post soon!
